Remington Park announced Dec. 14 that the racetrack and casino has reached an agreement with Dan Fick to serve as director of racing, beginning Jan. 1, 2011.
Most recently working as a state steward in Indiana, Fick served as executive director of racing for the American Quarter Horse Association for 19 years. In 2003 he was hired to be the executive director and vice president of The Jockey Club, a position he held through 2009.
Fick is the only person to have held such positions in the world’s two largest breed associations. In addition to his current duties as a steward, Fick also serves as an examiner for the National Thoroughbred Racing Association’s Safety and Integrity Alliance.
“Dan’s leadership abilities and his unmatched experience across all phases of the racing industry make him a perfect fit for Remington Park,” Remington president and general manager Scott Wells said. “He’s one of the most respected men in the business and for good reason.”
